Civil Defence Man 'Kills' Fellow Officer In Lagos

An official of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Innocent Osemi, on Monday night allegedly killed his colleague, identified as Senior Inspector Mamman Wuyah.

He injured another person. The incident allegedly occurred at the Lagos Deepshore, Offshore Logistics (LADOL) in Apapa area of Lagos. What happened?

The Nation learnt that a bullet had discharged accidentally from the gun of Osemi, said to be from Kogi command, but on beat assignment at LADOL, killing the senior inspector and leaving another injured.

Although it was initially alleged that both officers had a disagreement over money, sources at the NSCDC dismissed the allegation.

According to them, LADOL usually took care of officials posted to secure their facilities, hence, it was very unlikely the issue was about money.

“What we heard was that it was accidental discharge. It had nothing to do with money. Officers who are posted to LADOL are deployed from commands. In this case, the officer who died was from Kaduna command, while the other one was from Kogi.
“LADOL pays their allowances directly to their accounts, provides them good accommodation, so, they do not even have need to touch their salaries. This is why I can tell you it wasn’t about money,” said a source.

A statement by the corps’ spokesman, Emmanuel Okeh, said the suspect had been detained. Conveying the message of the Commandant-General, Abdullahi Mohammadu, to the bereaved family, Okeh said a committee had been set up to look into the incident. He said the injured person was responding to treatment.
